Someone flagged the listing (armslist) as a scam. ****!

That sucks. What is your local gun shop scene like? Seems like you keep finding revolvers that you have to get shipped in. I like to handle the gun before I buy. Especially an older revolver. To many issues that won't show up in pictures.

They can be hit and miss depending on the gun. It's usually cheaper/easier to order off the internet or find a good deal on armslist.

I'll check them out, but I seriously doubt I'll be able to find a 44 mag (what I originally wanted) for around $400 around here.

I know this isn't much help, but lots of 44's around here....few smiths tho. Mostly Taurus and a few Charters

This is what I'm getting. I found two different places that have them. One for $400, and the other for $450 (looks almost new). Mine will have the 8 3/8" barrel, and will be blued.

Looks like my brother in law's Taurus. He has the .44mag raging bull. Grip looks different though?

I think the grips in the video might be aftermarket, or just a different option.

Here's one of the Taurus' I'm looking at (the $450 one).

The place with the $400 one sold it, so I just finished placing an order for the $450 one shown above.

When will the bear testing commence?


Mention the scope mounts to your family as Christmas present fodder; from what I recall, BIL's were not included nor were they inexpensive.
